I’ve been thinking about how I want to start this blog going again, and I just watched a great interview between Seth Godin and Marie Forleo, currently two of my favorite people.
Seth Godin says to blog EVERY day.
He says that if you know you have to write a blog tomorrow (about something you’ve noticed, or a useful opinion, perspective, piece of knowledge, etc), you will open your expectations to receiving those things, to inventing and noticing those things. This is great for you! You can’t help but get better yourself. AND if other people actually read it and enjoy it — so much the better! He says his goal is not to sell, but to be trusted. And to help make the change he seeks to have happen for the world.
Beautiful stuff. SO, I’ll see you again tomorrow!
Much love and many blessings. ❤
There is definitely something to be said for taking decisive action. For me it was buying that plane ticket. I knew that cemented things for me. And that’s so important to me now, as the honeymoon period of a brand-new, beautiful idea is petering out. Do I still want to walk el Camino? Absolutely. Do I still plan to? Definitely. But without that plane ticket, I may have been tempted to hedge a bit this week.
It was one of those weeks for me. More easily agitated. A little less motivated. Thank goodness I still walked, though. I felt much better once I’d started. I was a bit sore Monday evening and then Tuesday day after that 3-hour walk on Monday. It’s good to know the muscles are changing. Wednesday and today I took one-hour walks with a half-packed backpack, and this weekend I intend to walk another 3-hour walk with an even fuller backpack. (Tomorrow I swim.)
I’m changing. Some of it feels good, and some of it doesn’t. My self-confidence has definitely improved (although this week it dipped back down a bit). I feel like I’m also becoming more assertive and less flexible. I’m not sure how I feel about that. But it has meant that my resentment levels have dropped, and that definitely feels better. I’m more focused, more directed . . . and more stubborn. 🙂 It’s all a learning process, right?
So much I could say, but this is good for today.
Much love, many blessings. ❤
Recently I’ve been seeing quite a few 5’s. 3 of them, to be exact: 555. I’m very into angel numbers, so I immediately looked up the significance in Doreen Virtue’s angel numbers book and got this message:
“Huge changes are rumbling throughout your entire life! To keep these changes on the highest possible course, be sure to keep your thoughts positive, and stay centered in prayer and affirmations.”
What an exciting message! (Particularly for someone who believes in the power of transformation!) What a great chance to play . . . what could this be? Is this an advancement in my coaching career? Is this spiritual progress? Is some part of my vision coming to fruition? (Or many parts?) What could these changes look like?
And . . . unicorns? Unicorns came up 3 times today — 1st Time: listening to part of one of my Vision Workshops, in which I chose “unicorn” as my animal; 2nd Time: It came up on a card in a clip on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon; 3rd Time: Doreen Virtue was riding her unicorn and used her unicorn deck today.
As I mentioned in one of my Facebook Lives, repetition — particularly in 3’s! — really gets my attention! I’m not really sure what to do with it, though. I’m not sure what a unicorn symbolizes. Maybe I’ll get some insight from my dreams tonight!
What changes would you love to see in our life? Much love, many blessings. ❤
I think it’s funny that certain subjects/ideas/quotes sometimes seem to come up for me around the same time of year. I discovered I posted about this almost exactly 2 years ago:
Metaphysics Monday: Are You Uncomfortable Yet?
I’ve really been thinking about this again. Do you feel comfortable? REALLY comfortable? If you do, that may not be a good sign!
Oftentimes discomfort comes from reaching the edge of our boundaries, from stretching farther than we ever have before. It can feel pretty awkward — even painful!
But then, once we make it through that boundary, extend that wall, we have more space. We are freer. And this continues until we completely break through all of our walls, until we no longer have any limitations.
So, how comfortable do you feel now? Is it time for a little stretch? I’m telling you, it’s worth it!
I had a dream this morning that I was in some kind of videogame (more like live action play), and I was aware that I was now on the zombie level. The zombies would be waking up soon, and I needed a gun. Then I had a gun and needed to figure out how to work it. I ran out of the house, hoping to buy myself some time. Then they were coming at me. I was shooting at them but missing, almost as if something inside me was making me miss. I ended up waking myself up from the dream.
I know what the dream was about. It’s about those monsters inside me, those aspects that should really be dead but that I’m keeping alive. In class today we shared our inner monsters. We’re now working on imagining how we actually do want to see ourselves. I’ve been receiving “imagination” and “visualization” quite a bit from the universe lately.
And apparently the universe really wants my attention on this zombie thing because I had three references to zombies today after I’d had my dream: I noticed a paintball billboard for shooting zombies, I saw a sign outside a classroom that said “Zombies Ahead,” and one of my tutoring students talked about Plants vs. Zombies. I guess this is important. . .
Peace, love, and zombie-less-ness to you all. ❤
